Former Yankee Alex Rodriguez will be getting his own “Manningcast”-like program on ESPN and will be joined by longtime New York Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay, sources told Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.
The news comes as the sports network continues to shake up its Sunday Night Baseball coverage after the announcement that play-by-play man Matt Vasgersian will no longer be involved. Karl Ravech will now assume play-by-play duties on ESPN with former Yankees pitcher David Cone as well as Eduardo Perez in the booth as analysts.
A report surfaced on Wednesday indicating that Rodriguez was potentially in line to get a “Manningcast”-like program. Now, it seems as though the show is set with it expected to air between 10-12 times over the season. It’s assumed the new show will feature guests just like Peyton and Eli Manning’s Monday Night Football program.
Kay will continue to call his full slate of Yankees games on YES, per Marchand.
